Default Getting the name of the logged on user

Hi all,

I need to get the login id of the user. In my asp.net apps I have used string temp = Request.ServerVariables["LOGON_USER"];
Now I have to accomplish the same thing in a Windows form.

Can anyone help


TIA

Grahame

You need to access the WindowsIdentity object

WindowsIdentity objIdentity = WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent();

GetCurrent is a shared function that retrieves the current logged on user. This object is located in the System.Security.Principal namespace.
